A Frame of Distinction
“We frame the things that are most important to us.” That was the quote I heard during an interview on The Today Show. Willy, Al, and Savannah were speaking with Janine Driver, president of the Body Language Institute, about how to get anyone to like you instantly. Ms. Driver presented a pair of twins as a demonstration for her techniques.
The twins were told to walk up to a doorway and pause there momentarily. One was playing the role of bold confidence and the other shy unease. Ms. Driver explained that when it comes to things that are most important to us, such as family pictures, we put them in a frame and display them. She encouraged viewers to pause at a doorway, thereby increasing their perceived value just by framing themselves in a confident pose.
The same is true in our homes. I am sure most, if not all, of you have framed pictures either hanging on the wall or sitting on a shelf. Those are likely photos of people and moments that you treasure most. Highlight those snapshots and increase their value to onlookers by placing a Cottage Barnwood Mirror around them. Not only does the strength and stability of the bold wood give more emphasis to the pictures within, but the character of the recycled wood gives even more life to the candid shots. Hang one picture inside or hang many, but this Barnwood frame gives a look of distinction and honor to your most cherished photos.
